Dye Test Certification Instructions

Effective August 1, 2012, all properties being serviced by the Clairton Municipal Authority must pass a routine DYE TEST in order to be sold. A dye test is required on a sale of property.

The plumber’s fee is $200.00.  The dye test application fee is $25.00.  The no-lien letter fee is $15.00.  Send one check totaling $240.00 to:

The Clairton Municipal Authority
1 North State Street
Clairton, PA  15025

Once The Clairton Municipal Authority has received payment, contact one of plumbers listed on the Authorized Plumbers List to schedule a dye test.  Once the property has successfully passed the dye test, the Sewer Certification Letters will be issued to whomever paid for them.  If the property does not pass the dye test, the owner must perform the necessary corrections as instructed by the authorized plumber.  Once the corrections are made, the owner must recall the plumber and reschedule another test (at no additional cost).  If the property successfully passes the recheck, then the Sewer Certification Letters letters will be issued and mailed.
